Kimberly-Clark to Implement Low-Cost, High-Performance Search Solutions to Geographies Worldwide With the Upgraded Google Search Appliance
Kimberly-Clark is a leading global health and hygiene company employing more than 55,000 people worldwide and posting sales of $18.3 billion in 2007. With a workforce that needs ready access to information and documents of all kinds, Kimberly-Clark relies heavily on enterprise search solutions. Despite the high-volume requirements of the organization, the previous search solution fell short. It was incapable of searching corporate file servers. Kimberly-Clark deployed Google Search Appliance that is capable of searching a wide array of repositories. It is used to search about half a million static web pages on the company intranet, as well as web applications, homegrown document management systems, web file servers, corporate file servers, and the company's public internet site.
